Hastings Law Professor Rory Little Appointed As Special Prosecutor in Disciplinary Proceeding Against Tommy Girardi and Walter Lack

Yesterday we blogged about the Ninth Circuit's order appointing a special prosecutor to pursue disciplinary sanctions against prominent plaintiffs' lawyers Tommy Girardi and Walter Lack. Today the Ninth Circuit has issued a further order appointing UC Hastings Law professor Rory K. Little as the special prosecutor. Hat tip to Legal Pad.

UPDATE: You can view Professor Little's bio here. He has prior experience as a prosecutor and has served on the ABA's Standing Committee on Legal Ethics, so he appears particularly qualified for this assignment.
